Who is Holy Spirit? He was here in the beginning—present before the world was ever created. Not merely an invisible force but fully God with us, He is always at work sustaining life and bringing order and beauty in chaos. He is infinite in nature, simultaneously as powerful as a raging storm and as calming as a gentle breeze. Holy Spirit is eternally existent all around us, sent so that God Himself could be near to us. He is not confined to human constructs yet He willingly shows up as our advocate, counselor and friend—ready and waiting to make His home in us and empower us in every moment. Find out more about Holy Spirit’s character in our next series, The 3rd Person.
As followers of Christ, we know that God has a promise for our lives—a destiny for each of us to live out on the earth. But throughout various seasons of our lives, we all experience trials of some kind. We may feel like God is far away, like we didn’t hear Him clearly when He spoke to us about our purpose. The good news is that the promise is just on the other side of our pain, but God wants us to be refined so we have the character necessary to thrive once He fulfills the promise. So, will you trust Him in the process?
